The Plaza  

Midtown East, Manhattan, New York City

The century-old, 282-room Plaza is a New York landmark. A $400 million overhaul in 2008 gave the huge rooms gold-plated bathroom fixtures, but it also converted most rooms overlooking Central Park into privately owned residences. Still, the beautifully restored Oak Room, exceptional spa, and 24-hour butler service make it worth the splurge. Eloise at Christmastime -- a children's book set at the hotel -- follows the adventures of a precocious Plaza resident during the holidays.
